Anyone see this go at the $99.99 price: Sifteo Interactive Game Cubes. Could've missed it, but I don't see it listed between the Stick and Lego. Never happened?

after the whole "ending" fiasco, i think ill wait a little longer before buying me3.


I thought about that, but I figured that if I finish the game and I truly don't like the ending then I'll just make up a ending of my own and pretend that's how,the game actually ended. I bit and bought the game.

Damn I probably should have waited to get ME3. Got it at launch and hardly have had time to play it.

yeah. it's probably best to wait. there's no other direction the price for that game can go other than down. as for the ending - like Thomas96 said, just make up your own.

strangely this is one of the rare titles where the MP > SP. if you have friends, grab them and go finish the fight!

$30 was my price point to pick up ME3, but think I can wait for it to hit $20. Considering how fast it hit half MSRP, probably will be down to $20 in summer time. I'll be busy playing Diablo 3 in a few weeks anyways.

Could try PMing GameStop at Target. It's $40 in GS's weekly ad, plus you could try to combine that with the trade 2 for $20 off.

had to bite on ME3. don't see it going lower than 30 for awhile. maybe by BF/xmas but even then that would probably still be the $20 price point which isn't much difference

Thanks on the helpful detailed explanation between the two sticks.. should of bought the UMvC3 with amazon credit i had but did not want to burn it on something i was not too sure on...


No prob!

I like a heavier weight so, I would choose the madcatz.

But I honestly like the SCV Hori stick better than those two.
http://www.amazon.co...ref=pd_sim_vg_2
It has more hardware features that the Madcatz and UMvC3 Hori does not. It has all buttons including L3 and R3. A cover to prevent start button presses. And two usb ports on the stick to connect a headset or keyboard. It doesn't have a curve for your wrist though, that's user preference though. It was on sale for $109.99 on April 2 -April 15.

All 3 sticks use the same joystick and button Sanwa Denshi parts. In the end it's about which one do you like stylistically: ball top color, button color, and cover art (but also with extra cash these are all easily modifiable.)


Not a big fan of the Namco Noir layout (I prefer a Vewlix) but to each their own. I also a prefer a heavier stick although the 1.6-pound weight difference (4.8 vs 6.4 pounds) won't make a huge/noticeable difference between both Hori's (UMvC3 & SC5)...Hori VLX & Voltech VAS-22 (each one weighs 12+ pounds!) FTMFW! Yeah, I agree about it really depends on which style casing, button layout, ball-top & button colors & artwork you prefer. You really can't go wrong with any of these sticks since they all have Sanwa components.

Love me some arcade sticks!

That was my thinking too. Probably they'll have the "regular" edition for $19.99, and a "Game of the Year" edition with all of the DLC added for $39.99 around Christmas.

I'm more than content buying it now. Just goes to show you that you should never pre-order or buy a game in the first 1-2 months it's released.

It probably will be $19.99 by then, but they might not do a GOTY edition with DLC, ME2 didn't get one.

I got my fightstick today, but the box was in so so shape. I complained to amazon and they refunded me $50 and gave me $30 back in promotional credit. My final effective cost, $10 !!!

WTF?!

Got my fightstick yesterday. Box had a tear in it (just bad design) and the artwork was already coming off in one corner. Gonna have Amazon exchange it for me. Mad Catz QC is just crap.

I was kind of pissed they shipped my fight stick in just a bigger box with no padding at all. Luckily only a few small dents in the box. Maybe I should bash if up some and complain. lol
